RSS Feeds for fresh content ideas
Tap into the power of RSS (Rich Site Syndication technology) feeds for a never ending source of new content ideas.
What is RSS?
Most websites offer a RSS feed that you can subscribe to get instant content delivered to you via a RSS reader.
The information is sent around using the XML file format.
RSS lets publishers syndicate their content quickly and easily around the web.
Taping into RSS feeds gives you access to niche relevant content that you can curate (with a link to the original article).
Syndicating RSS content works similarly to how major new sites all report on the same event, at the same time, but each with its own unique spin on the events.
Now you have access to fresh, new content ideas to draw readers and visitors to your blog.
Why use RSS?
RSS feeds are awesome because:
- They provide inspiration for fresh content that is related to your niche.
- RSS feeds are updated frequently and contain content that hasn't already been overly syndicated.
- By updated your site frequently, you encourage SE to crawl and index your site more regularly.
Getting spidered frequently is good!
You want your websites to get indexed and cached as quickly as possible. That way new posts on your site are picked up by Google and can start ranking quickly.
If you regularly publish content on your site, the Google bot is more likely to visit and thus index your new content faster.
